Guests at Geauga Lake (formerly Six Flags Worlds of Adventure) used to take flight on – X-Flight – a flying roller coaster. This Vekoma designed Flying Dutchman model uses a unique train with seats that recline to a lying down position. Upon reaching the top of the lift hill, the train inverts, positioning the rider in a flying position. During the 3,340-foot circuit riders experience the sensation of flight while going through five inverting elements – Lie to Fly, a 66-foot tall Vertical Loop, the Horseshoe and two In-line Twists. To increase capacity, the roller coaster was designed with a dual, side-by-side loading station.
